3 (who?)
Down into the world
With the Lady Gagas
And the Justin Biebers
And the Stephenie Meyers
And the attention whores
Shaking themselves on the screen
We can no longer benefit society
If we live in this deep hole of today

We pop out babies
With no real regard
Pushing the population to 7 billion
Everything is quickly becoming a statistic
Splashed onto our everyday news
6 thousand dead in earthquake
Family killed with drink driving
Teen suicide rates going up
Human life
Has been made so disposable
People against abortions
Support their country going to war
Priority of life goes to those not born
Not those who are living

What a crazy world....

With technology doing our work
The human race becomes lazier
Desiring everything to be
Quick and cheap
And not
Enriching and qualitative
Business makes itself rich
Off of our slovenly behaviour

We seek drugs to numb the pain
We seek scapegoats to shift the blame
For it is commonly believed
Everything that happens in the world
Is the fault of
Everyone else but
I was talking to Roxy on MSN and I told her I wanted to try some poetry.

And this is what I came up with. It's very unoriginal, but it's a bit cynical at some points, and offers my opinion and viewpoint on certain issues. You don't have to agree with me, and you're free to think that my viewpoint is wrong.

Anyway, here you go.

Actually I noticed a flaw. We seek drugs to get high :iconimhighplz:

True. But most people who do think of taking drugs are in situations where they want to forget their troubles and want to get high. Kinda like me. XD Except I'd rather get high on sugar. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
I still think most people who think of taking drugs are just wondering what it'd be like to get high. Like me o3o

I am at a loss for words. XDD Which is kinda funny because I definitely spilled out my guts just then.
